Tim Tebow’s return to Sydney as opener for the Brisbane Broncos opens up new era
SAN FRANCISCO — Tim Tebow is back to Sydney, and he’s ready to lead a team again.
He was in town for his first game as an NFL starter last weekend.
“This is what we want to do, this is what I want to be known for,” Tebow said.
But Tebow, who was released by the New England Patriots after the season, has yet to find a way to become the regular starter for the Broncos.
Tebow said he was “not expecting” to be back in Sydney after he was released, and said he’s not sure when he’ll be back to play.
The Broncos have lost their starting quarterback in the past, with Tim Tebrows first two starts being in 2011 and 2012.
Bryce Petty was the team’s starter in the opener and played well enough to win the game, but Petty’s struggles last year left the Broncos hoping he would return to the lineup this season.
It’s not known if the Broncos plan to keep the franchise quarterback.
If he is, he could play a large role in the offense.
That hasn’t happened in the last two seasons with rookie Trevor Siemian, and the Broncos will need Tebow to prove himself if they want to keep him.
Injuries to Siemian and Tyreek Hill also have left the team vulnerable, and they’ve been without their two starting running backs in Le’Veon Bell and Ronnie Hillman.
Tebow is a big part of that, as is running back Shane Vereen, who’s missed the past two games with a hamstring injury.
They’ll need Tebrow to prove he’s worth the roster spot and take over the starting job if the team wants to win games this season, even if it doesn’t have him as its starter.
Tebrows absence has caused a lot of concern for the offense, especially with the Broncos down three receivers in the final two weeks.
With a bye week, the Broncos could get some rest for the bye week to help prepare for Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.
Teams often make roster moves during the bye weeks, but it’s not uncommon for the team to keep its players through those weeks to see how they’re feeling.
I have not seen the injury reports, but they’ve said he feels good and they are not concerned, and I do not think that is a sign of any sort of injury, said Tebow.
As of now, the team doesn’t know if Tebow will play Sunday.
On Saturday, Tebow spoke to reporters for the first time since he was cut by the Patriots.
What I want people to know is this is going to be a game that’s going to get a lot bigger, bigger and better, he said.
Teachers, teammates and Broncos fans were thrilled by Tebow as he announced his return to training camp.
There’s no timetable for his return.
Tim said he felt the same way he felt when he was in the game in the first game of the season last year.
I’ve been in this game, this league for five years and this is the first opportunity for me to be here. “
But I knew I could be a starter.
I’ve been in this game, this league for five years and this is the first opportunity for me to be here.
We’ll see if I can be a guy to win this game or not, but I’m excited to be in the lineup.”
Tim has never played in an NFL game.
Instead, he’s spent his entire career as a professional football player.
His first NFL start came in 2010, when he took over for Peyton Manning and led the Denver Broncos to a Super Bowl victory.
Since then, Tebowers career has been plagued by injuries, and in the meantime, he has been sidelined with a concussion, a sprained MCL and a bruised knee.
Last season, Tebows career was hampered by a foot injury that led to a career-ending knee injury.
The Broncos made Tebower available for the regular season opener against the New Orleans Saints in New Orleans on Sunday, but he didn’t play.
